Rock Solid Work Horse
This is my 3rd 690 over the years. Always worth having this great standard in your line up. They run like a top, and last like a tank. Some call them 'old school' routers, but heck - sometimes it's about more than the bells and whistles.

Pros
Easy To Use
About what I've come to expect from PC.
Straightforward, simple and hardworking. Mine came through with the new ergonomic soft grip handles, not the ones shown in the product photo - a nice surprise. This is the perfect machine for everyday edge routing chores, as well as any kind of template work (hinge mortising, dovetail jigs....). PC has a wide array of accessories and bases available, and pretty much every aftermarket jig and gizmo ever made will fit it.I'm a former professional cabinetmaker, furniture builder and stair builder, and I needed a good handling everyday router (I have a PC 3 1/4 hp vs speedmatic permanently mounted in a router table-). When I saw this machine at CPO for the price offered, it was a no-brainer. [...]

Good Route to take !
We are up to 15 of these in the shop now. Some are set with specific cuts in mind so we do not have to change bits and settings. others we use for all types of flush cutting , slot cutting and general clean up of edges.

OK router for the price
I bought this as a "refurbished" tool because the price was certainly right for the size and horsepower. The router works fine and has the power and features I expected. It replaced a 50+ year old Porter Cable "GUIDE" 7/8 HP router that was getting pretty tired. The things I like are the "snap-action" locking ring on the height adjustment, and the fact that it has two collets (1/4" and 1/2") so it can accomodate a variety of bits. It was obviously a refurbished tool, having one broken screw in the base plate, some dings and some rust on the fasteners, but seems to work fine. If I had any criticism it would be the "ON-OFF" switch which is very small and a bit difficult to operate.

BEST ANSWER: Yes,they are compatible.

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.
